THE UN SEMINAR: Learning International Organizations in Theory and Practice

The UN SEMINAR learning community is an open forum associated with the International Organizations Seminar taught by Dr. Marco Tavanti, Chair of the International Public Service Graduate Program at DePaul University Chicago.
